Ever since the super incredible and super talented Janelle Monae hit the scene, many have been quick to question her sexuality due to her androgynous style.

She stopped by Sway in the Morning at Sirius XM’s Shade 45 earlier this week to promote her fantastic new album, The Electric Lady.

Of course, the hosts couldn’t to pass up the opportunity to ask Janelle if she prefers men or women. She kept her response vague, saying:

“Women are amazing…and so are guys.

There’s nothing wrong with being bisexual, there’s nothing wrong with being lesbian or gay. I am an advocate. i have friends who are in same sex relationships and I feel love has no sexual orientation. Live has no religious belief. Love is the purest and most important thing we can possess for ourselves and for others.”

Sway then asked straight up if she dated men or women.

“I keep my personal life very much to myself. I want everybody to focus on my music. I also don’t want to let anybody down. I want women to still be attracted to me. Go get my album! I want men to still be attracted to me so I have to be political in this. So I can’t really tell y’all!”

She handled that with such class! Watch the interview below!
